Description

As a Thanksgiving extra or for any time of the year, Turkey Meatballs with Cranberry Sauce is a savory dish with a light tang of cranberry sweetness.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 pounds 93% lean ground turkey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • ½ cup onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ½ teaspoons minced garlic or 3 cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil or cooking spray
  • 1 (14 oz.) can Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce
  • ½ cup water
  • finely chopped parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl using both hands, thoroughly mix all ingredients together and shape meat into 1 to 1 ½-inch balls; set aside.
  2. Grease a large skillet with oil or generously coat with a cooking spray. Set over medium heat. Place each meatball into skillet, cover, and cook for 8 minutes or until bottom of meatballs are browned. Rotate meatballs and cook for another 8 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F and the turkey is cooked throughout.
  3. Meanwhile, in a 2-quart saucepan set over medium-high heat, whisk cranberry sauce and water until smooth, about 3 to 5 minutes. Pour sauce over meatballs and reduce heat to simmer. Allow meatballs in cranberry sauce to simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Serve hot with added finely chopped parsley sprinkled over meatballs. ENJOY!
